Blanketed Horse Pooping on Himself
I have two horses. One is a QH/Mustang mare (9 yrs) and the old gelding (30+) is an Arab. They both wear the same brand/style blanket. The mare never has this problem. The old boy, he of the high-flung tail, just can't seem to avoid getting manure on himself. I clean him at least twice a day. He doesn't seem to have this problem in the summer. The blanket fits perfectly and there is plenty of room for him to raise his tail; in fact he is perfectly capable of raising it when he is just excited and running around. Is there a solution for this problem or just something we have to live with?
